Welcome to Night Vale is a free podcast in the style of community radio set in a strange, Twilight Zone-esque town called Night Vale.

What do you need to know?

  • You can listen to it on itunes for free or listen to it here (scroll all the way down to the bottom for the first one).
  • Each podcast is 20-30 minutes long.
  • New ones are posted on the 1st and 15th of the month.
  • The broadcaster’s name is Cecil.
  • It’s weird. Get used to that.
  • Yes, the weather section is just music. But it’s awesome music.
  • No, Cecil having a third eye, tentacles, moving tattoos, etc. are not canon. These are all fanon interpretations of him. There’s no canon description other than that he has a face with a nose and eyes and mouth, and he’s neither tall nor short, thin nor fat.
  • Carlos is perfect.
  • Desert Bluffs is a rival town. They suck.
  • Sit up when you’re listening to it. Cecil’s voice is smooth and sonorous, and it can put you to sleep.

Why listen to it?

  • There’s queer representation in the form of our host, Cecil.
  • Cecil’s love interest is a POC. And perfect.
  • Cultural appropriation is fucking slammed.
  • The fandom is amazing and produces beautiful art and graphics.
  • It’s funny.
  • It’s unlike anything you’ve ever heard before.
  • There’s a floating cat.

ah ah for those who might want-transcripts

for extras-the twitter account

it announces updates, answers questions and gives insights and warnings

i hope this wonderful post by the op helps you make up your mind and delve in the madness that this odd town is

I had no idea what this is but excuse me as I go find out

Carlos and Cecil reach an angst-ridden agreement that he is allowed to cut his hair twice a year, based on the average human hair growth rate of 0.44 millimeters a day. This achieves “maximum lushness” without sacrificing hygiene or requiring a hairnet in the lab.

The first few times are always the hardest.
